Went to Coquina on the Beach, in Lido Key in Sarasota Florida ; this past Saturday Jan 23, 2016. When you drive into the resort, it looks very ordinary but when we checked in; nothing ordinary about this resort but beautiful, romantic, and a thrill to be right on the beach. Our room was on the 1st floor with a... More

We went to this hotel for a few days for Thanksgiving in November and enjoyed our time with family and friends in 2 adjoining connected rooms. This hotel has pros and cons which I will describe below. PROS: The hotel sits directly on the beach and you can walk right out from your room and on to the sand. The... More

Old school Florida charm with a great location for EZ walking anywhere on the key. It is an older 2 story building not a brand-new shiny luxury high rise. But if your here for the beach and restaurants and like that old school Florida feel and what to travel with your best friend (it's pet friendly) then this is for... More

My wife & I booked a patio room for our 1 year anniversary weekend. When we got there, the staff was very pleasant & accommodating, letting us look at the difference between the patio room & a Suite. We were offered a discount so we upgraded to a Suite overlooking the pool out to the beach. What an awesome little... More

This little motel (right on Lido beach) is our best kept secret for a fun, relaxing couple of days or a week, which ever you prefer. This property is directly on the beach ( no walking across a street). It has a nice pool and an area for grilling right on the beach ( several grills available), and covered picnic... More

I like that this is a Clean place, has comfy rooms with kitchen and is right on the beach and just off St Armand's Circle. It's a Super location, but air conditioners are circa 1970 -- loud and blow moldy air. For all the positives, I wouldn't rebook unless they refurbish their ac.

I am glad you enjoyed the property, cleanliness and location. I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with the air conditioner. The air conditioners are actually not from 1970, they are all modern Amana Ptac units, but due to the fact that we are directly on the beach sometimes the salt air takes its toll on them.... More

We have stayed at the coquina many,many times. This year we stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of September. We had a king size room not far from the beach. The room was large and comfortable. We were very disappointed this year that Aimee, the reservations manager had left after 17 years. The beach is beautiful with many shells.... More

We have stayed here the last two summers and thoroughly enjoy the hotel. The rooms are super clean, and no matter which room you're in, the beach is just steps away. I also enjoy the ability to prep breakfast in house. Great place!

Searching for coastal lodging in the Sarasota area without spending a lot is challenging. Helping solve that issue is Coquina on the Beach. On the barrier island of Lido Key, this smaller inn is right off the main beachside road among many other hotels and apartments. Our family visited the inn for six summer days to enjoy the sun and...

We booked the hotel for its location on Lido Key, beachfront access, and comparatively value price. We wanted to experience the weekend trip without driving our car and walk to nearby sites, but both evenings rain threatened around dinner time and we decided to drive the mile to St Armand's Circle for dinner and a stroll. The hotel's beach area... More
